a stereotype

i'm gorgeous so i must not be a virgin. i'm a lesbian, so i must have a sex tape. i speak my mind, so i must be a bitch. i'm a girl who actually eats lunch, so i must be fat. i have a bunch of guy friends, so i must be doing them all. i wear skirts a lot, so i must be a slut. i'm a cheerleader, so i must be a whore. i fell in love with a married man, so i must be a home-wrecking whore. i'm a teenage  mom, so i must be an irresponsible slut. i have big boobs, so i must be a hoe. i'm a virgin, so i must be prude. i'm skinny, so i must be anorexic. i'm a black woman with 3 children, so they all must have different dads. i'm an atheist, so i must hate the world. i'm rich, so i'm a conceited snob. i'm muslim, so i must be covered up at all times. i'm into theater and art, so i must be a homosexual. i'm young, so i must be naive. i dress in unusual ways, so i must be looking for attention. i'm indian, so i must own a convenience store. i'm german, so i must be a nazi. i'm christian, so i hate homosexuals. i'm asian, so i mist be a nerd that does homework 24/7. i'm Jamaican, so i must smoke weed. i'm mexican, so i must have hopped the border.

you could go on for days about this and everyone knows it. our community lives so much off of stereotypes. its the way of life. and it is wrong. we all know it is.
